About Us

Lockwood Restaurant, open daily at 6:30am serving à la carte breakfast including farm fresh eggs made your way and Bertha’s buttermilk pancakes with brownie crumble.  Start your day Lockwood Restaurant.

The Lobby Bar at Lockwood is the place to sip curated cocktails and enjoy shared plates.  Raise a glass to the Sesquicentennial Celebration at Palmer House, a Hilton Hotel with an 1871 cocktail as you toast under a canvas of 21 Greek Mythological frescos lit by the warm glow of Louis Comfort Tiffany Winged Angel candelabras. An awe-inspiring living, breathing piece of history fully restored to its original beauty with careful attention to the intricate details, down to the most of important matters, a perfectly prepared cocktail.

Lockwood Express, located just off the lobby, is the ideal spot to pick up on-the-go items from Lavazza coffee and house made pastries in the morning, to artisan sandwiches, salads, snacks, craft beer, wine and mix-n-go cocktails into the evening. Insider tip – pick up an original brownie here, it’s the original recipe invented in the Palmer House pastry kitchen in 1893.
